I would never ever like a plate out in public, but I have been known to do that on occasion with some really, really good dishes. One in particular comes to mind. It's a John Besh (yes I know but he's a good chef) recipe with homemade gnocchi, fresh crab, a rich delicious pan sauce using cream, butter, seafood stock, etc, with shaved truffles over the top. I'll admit I licked every single bit of that sauce off the plate both times I have made it. For this dish, I would probably sneakily use my finger to scrape up the sauce and lick it out in public though.
Would you please post a link to that recipe?

My dad always told us he never wanted to see milk being poured down the drain unless it was spilled in the floor. "Not a thing wrong with that milk in the bowl. Drink it!"
I'll pass on licking the plate though.

Has anyone mentioned that what gets licked off a plate, has flavor at least twice as good as the part that was eaten with a fork or spoon? This is not imaginary. When people lick things, the way it was done by our ancient ancestors when they ate many natural foods, it stimulates the flavor-sensing area of our brains to register a greater intensity. When we extend our tongues, it turns on that mode. It's tied in to the way that women go wild, when a guy sticks the tip of his tongue into their ear.

I had not heard of that, but I do know that some people are very sensitive to the metallic taste many utensils impart to food, particularly delicately flavored food. Those porcelain spoons used for soup at Japanese restaurants are there for a reason. Same thing with chopsticks: the food tastes better.

Who cares what other people think anyway.
I was so sad to read this...

Actually licking the plate, no never.

I let my dogs and cats lick the plate!
